The rest of this post is going to talk about and weight loss so there’s your content warning and here is the jump…

Weight Loss & Body Positivity

I want to preface this with a content warning and place it all under a cut as it does deal with weight loss and as someone who still fights an eating disorder – I understand.  So PLEASE, if you feel this post will trigger you in ANY way, don’t read on.  I totally get it and understand.  
Recovery is always possible and attainable.

Not Disabled Enough…?

I haven’t actually written about my disabilities and how they impact my day to day life for a while.  This isn’t because they haven’t been affecting me, but simply because when I’ve passed comments I’ve found that certain areas of the disabled community (and society…. I’ll get there) seem to think it’s a competition of some sort and that some people just aren’t “disabled enough”;  for what exactly I’m not 100% sure.

What I am sure about is that just because I don’t “look disabled” doesn’t mean my disability can be written off or ignored & invalidated and when I say the words “I am disabled”, I shouldn’t have to prove it to anyone.

The First Time… #SexBlog

I meant to do this much sooner than I have; however I wanted to get it all written out, or at least my thoughts written down so I knew where I was gonna go with this.
I figured the best way was to just go point by point of a tumblr post (surprise surprise), that meant well but is actually quite problematic for many.

So here is the post….

And after the jump we’ll go through it together.  

  • I also wish to note that this whole post refers to penis-in-vagina intercourse.

RIP Beauty Standards [#BodyPositivityForAll]

Quite a harsh title, I’ll give you that… However it should be true. 

This blog started as one thing and turned into a battle cry of sorts…. But I am legitimately not upset about that… Keep reading…

13 Reasons Why

…Normally I wouldn’t post two blogs in a week but, after finishing the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why I had to get my thoughts down.  I made this post in a FB group and realised shortly after that, I should share it as much as I can.  I don’t wanna stay silent… That’s the point, or one of them, of the series. 

If you wanna read my last blog about feeling abandoned, click the link.  

However…. First.  Please read my experience… And if you’re feeling suicidal or struggling with self harm, bullying ….anything….. please PLEASE seek help.  It is out there, I promise you. Life will get better and there is never any shame in asking for help.

Don’t Say These Things

Ah… it’s a chronic illness blog – I’m gonna class this in my Fibro Updates tag, however this whole blog applies to every single chronic illness out there (I see you spoonies. I see you.)

Read on…. it may be a long one… I like to be thorough.

My Top 5… [[Part 4]]

…Fave Pop Songs!

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3 // Part 4 // Part 5

Everyone has those guilty pleasures; whether you bop to Westlife, Backstreet Boys or Take That.  We have those songs that still make us smile, we still know the routines to and we still know all the lyrics.  They may remind us of a fun summer, a snowy winter or a great friendship…. but we all have them.  I’d love to know your guilty pleasures in the comments section.

As always – none of these are in any specific order.

My Top 5… [[Part 3]]

…. Favourite Rock Songs

Part 1 // Part 2 // Part 3 // Part 4 // Part 5

I’ve been brought up with quite eclectic tastes in music; however it’s always been the heavier side of things that I gravitate towards.  At the age of five I sang along word for word to Sabbath Bloody Sabbath – much to the amusement of my mother and disgrace of my grandmother.

So…. on wards!
